's opinion of the matter. nevertheless, no chance in that happening, but we know from what david axelrod has said and others, there will likely be a strategy change for the president in the next debate. >> no one knows why the president didn't do as well. i think that you're going to see a more focused president obama. actually, a more focused obama campaign team on preparation. this is a conversation we had about mitt romney and a lot of things he said shouldn't have been too surprising given all the republican debates we had seen over the past year or so. and president obama was caught flat-footed, his campaign was flat-footed. we'll see if the adjustments they end up making as david axelrod promised. >> what's the early word on the vice presidential debates? you have democrats off the record worried knowing that biden could give a make moment or a break moment. >> it's most watched tv. it's important to note that paul ryan has never been on this stage before. joe biden, given he's run for president twice, including the 2008 series, has a lot of debate experience. so it's going to be inter
campaign senior advisor david axelrod told fox, "public polls are widely variant in their sampling and methodology so it's hard to case when they all point in one direction they're all wrong, but we are planning for a close race as we always have." another democratic strategist offered this assessment -- >> the race isn't over. look, this thing can move back and forth three or four times between now and november 6th. if i'm romney, you try to create that momentum. he saw a sign to do it. >> of the eight presidential races in the past 10 where the leads were cut or flipped by the opponent, the average of the comebacks was roughly 5%. in some cases it was a debate that moved the needle. harris? >> mike, thank you of the let's go to syria where the u.n. is estimating more than 20,000 citizens have died in the uprising against the government in the past year and a half. [gunfire] >> obviously you can hear the gunfire as fighting between the rebels and government forces in aleppo intensifies. one activist saying no one is making gains. this has been a key point for them fighting there,
's right. >> and now to david axelrod. david, i want to read ron fornier tonight in "national journal," "call it the curse of incumbency like many of his predecessors, president obama fell victim wednesday night to high expectations, a short fuse, and a hungry challenger." guilty as charged? >> well, look, there's no doubt he has a hungry challenger. governor romney's always been good on the attack. we saw that during the primaries. what he's not very good at is offering specifics about his plans. he tried to deny his $5 trillion tax cut. but that's what he's offered, brian. he's offered to bring down corporate rates to 25%. offered a 20% across the board income tax cut. and he has no plan to pay for it. he wants to spend $2 trillion more on defense. no plan to pay for it. he says he's going to roll back obama care and wall street reform. no plan for what he would replace it with. so all night long he was -- i give him style points. what he would be graded down on is the substance of what he was talking about. he did also double down on turning medicare into a voucher program. and i t
better for the american people. >> sean: with 35 days to go, it is obvious -- i was watching david axelrod on the morning program this is morning, like you, i am sure you didn't get much sleep. there is now a concertedert to deconstruct what happened last night. sort of like, make people doubt what they say. and the term that we played earlier that you lied, that you misrepresented, that you were acting... well the president doubled down on the same narrative. i wanted to give you to a chance to respond to what he said earlier today. >> so you see, the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real mitt romney decisions and what he has been saying for the last year. that's because he knows full well that we don't want what he has been selling the last year. [cheers and applause] governor romney may dance around his positions, but if you want to be president, you owe the american people the truth. >> sean: seems like he's insinuating that you were lying. your reaction? >> well... obviously, the president wasn't happy with... the response to -- to our d
. and david axelrod saying, we don't want a president who shoots first and aims later. >> governor romney leaped out on this libya issue on the first day. and was terribly mistaken about what he said. that is not what you want in a president of the united states. and as for senator mccain, for whom i have great respect, he has disapproved of our approach in libya from the beginning. >> reporter: democrats say the focus needs to be on protecting american personnel in the future. >> thank you. another suspected incident of a deadly insider attack in afghanistan. two americans, a soldier and a civilian, were killed when an afghan soldier allegedly turned his gown him. just this year, 50 foreign troops have been killed by afghan soldiers. and these most recent attacks bring us to a sad milestone. 2,000 american troops have been killed since the war in afghanistan began almost 11 years ago. an afghan spokesman says the latest attack is now under investigation. house homeland security chief is want backing down for the call for susan rice to recipe. there are bipartisan calls, demanding answers
increases? because we've heard david axelrod describe presidential campaign as being anm mri for e soul. >> think about it, martin, if the roles were reversed and mitt romney were winning, he wouldn't be -- i should say winning in the polls, in the number of survey that is have come out over the last two weeks, he would have a sunnier disposition. he'd be in a better mood. of course he's going to be testy. of course he's going to be a little short and brusque with the media and with anybody who is questioning him about the state of his campaign, the state of his candidacy. so i don't fault him for being testy. i mean, if anything, what he should be thinking about and worried about is how is he going to turn this ship around in the 38, 37, 36 days that he has left to make his case to the american people. >> well, anna marie, chris christie says he can turn it around on wednesday night, and he says we're going to wake up with a fresh sense of this candidate on thursday morning. what are your thoughts? >> well, i love chris christie for a lot of reasons. he's certainly the most irreverent
advisor david axelrod said this about the debate. the president's never satisfied with his performance. he is always challenging himself. and he will review it if he wants to make changes in the next debate, he will do so. what he was satisfied with was that he went and told the american people the truth as i mentioned polls show most americans governor romney won the debate. you can see it's not even close in this cnn survey. but almost half the viewers also said the debate did not effect how they will vote in november. these overnight surveys are instant, emotional reaction that could change down the road. campaign carl cammeron is live at governor romney's rally in fisher'sville virginia. >> humble. campaign thinks he ran away. trace atkins warming up the crowd here. right in the heart of shenandoah valley. very red part of the state. began in denver in the wake of last night's debate. he called surprise at colorado action conference. the crowd absolutely ate it up. romney reiterated a new line revealed last night arguing that the obama agenda amounts to trickle down government which he
is putting into these debates. >> chris: well, that was governor romney and top obama advisor david axelrod playing the expectations game ahead of wednesday's first presidential debate. it is time for our sunday group, bill kristol of "the weekly standard," liz mar lantas, syndicated talk show host laura ingraham and political analyst juan williams. bill you heard paul ryan say romney will offer the country a clear choice of two different economic futures. is that what he needs to do wednesday? is that enough? >> i think, he needs to win the debate. that is my advice to governor romney and it is time to begin panicking and that means offering his own way ahead and, really explaining why the next four years under president obama will be disastrous, shouldn't focus on the last four years, focus on the next four years and clear choice, and really lay out what four more years of obama policies, in terms of debt and, no economic growth and in terms of a failed foreign policy, would look like, and lay out the romney alternative, and, i think he needs to go right at obama. my advice, ignore jim le
